UK Prime Minister Theresa May Calls Trump’s Comments About Women ‘Unacceptable’
Last night, Donald Trump took to Twitter to say he “[looks] very much forward to to meeting Prime Minister Theresa May in Washington in the Spring.”
I look very much forward to meeting Prime Minister Theresa May in Washington in the Spring. Britain, a longtime U.S. ally, is very special!

It appears, however, that May might be less enthusiastic about the whole thing. In a TV interview, she was asked about Trump bragging about sexual assault in tapes that emerged just before the 2016 election. She reportedly told Sky News, “I think that’s unacceptable.”
She did acknowledge, however, that Trump has apologized for his remarks, and said that the “relationship that the UK has with the United States is about something much bigger than just the relationship between the two individuals as president and prime minister.”
May added, “It’s based on shared values and it is a relationship where, actually in the UK, we feel we can say to the US if we disagree with something that they are doing.”
